Good health to you, united country!
I did not accidentally say “united.”
The seventh day of this terrible war began
A war we feel the same way.
We were all bombed in Kyiv last night.
And we all died again in Babyn Yar (also known as Babi Yar – click here to learn more about the atrocities that happened here during the Holocaust. ) – from a missile strike.
Although the whole promises – never again.
For any normal person who knows history,
Babyn Yar is a special part of Kyiv.
A special part of Europe.
A place of prayer.
A place of remembrance for the hundred thousand people killed by the Nazis.
The place of old Kyiv cemeteries.
Who should you be to make it a target for missils.
You are killing Holocaust victims for the second time.
During the Soviet era, a TV center was built on the bones there.
And also a sports complex. Out buildings.
The built a park there.
To erase the true history of Babyn Yar.
But why was it bombed?
This is beyond humanity.
Such a missile strike shows that for many people in Russia, our Kyiv is completely foreign.
They know nothing about our capital.
About our history.
But they have an order to erase our history.
Erase our country.
Erase us all.
On the first day of the war, Uman (click here to learn more about this special Jewish city) was brutally bombed, where hundreds of thousands of Jews come every year to pray.
Then – Babyn Yar, where hundred sof thousands of Jews were executed.
I am now addressing all the Jews of the world.
Don’t you see what is happening?
That is why it is very important that millions of Jews around the world do not remain silent right now.
Nazism is born in silence.
So shout about the killings of civilians.
Shout about the killing of Ukrainians.
Every single Jew, every single person of conscience, every single one of us is obligated right now to not simply say “Never Again,” but to live these words. Each of us should be shouting. We should be sending funds and desperately needed supplies to Ukraine. I am so grateful for all of you who are doing just this. We must keep shouting, acting, supporting the people of Ukraine!
